    Very cool, but should I be more happy or more worried that they keep a lifesize Terminator endokeleton in the office?

    That is amazing and disconcerting at the same time considering its funding source. Put this technology together with Honda's Azimo and we have an army, a droid army.

    Of course I'll have to save judgement until after I watch but I saw a teaser for a show on The Discovery Channel next Sunday (Feb. 17) that will address the possibility of real life "Jurassic Park" genetic engineering.

    I saw that teaser as well and I'm intrigued but I think what they are actually trying to do is bring that bee back and calling it a dinosaur. The bee would be feasible. Like the wooly mammoth project thats going on right now. They can and are doing it but it will take several generations of hybrids before they are close to a pure mammoth. Bee's on the other hand have significantly shorter life cycles.
